Party has long been a liberal/conservative alliance

By the time we have another provincial election here in B.C., the two main parties will likely be the NDP, and the… well, we’re not sure!

The B.C. Liberal Party’s membership voted in June to consider changing the party’s name.

The Liberals here are not affiliated with the federal party of the same name. In B.C., the Liberals have, since at least the 1990s, been an alliance of federal Liberal and Conservative Party supporters.

What do you think of this re-branding exercise? Should the B.C. Liberals find a new name, or not?
